  • I fill my tub once a month and put a dozen denture cleaner fizzies in the water and let it sit for several hours. A light scrub it works well. I think it would depend on just how scummy your tub is to start with though. LOL

  • Those after shower sprays work well to keep soap scum from building up! Also, Scrubbing Bubbles works fantastic!

  • I spray the walls and curtain really good after each shower. There is a spray on product that you can put on the walls every day that's supposed to cut down on scum.

  • Stop using a soap that is sodium lauryl sulfate-based and switch to a glycerine base.

  • I spray my shower doors and tub with NoWork after I use them - and once a week I clean with Tub & Tile - I love these products - they are eco-friendly, work great and are very reasonable! A lot less expensive than store and national brands. Please contact me if you would like more info.

  • What Fistandantalus said!

    I stopped buying anything but natural soap, shampoo, etc. a few years ago and haven't had soap scum since. At this point I make most of our toiletries, our laundry soap, and cleaning solutions and my house has never been cleaner or easier to keep clean.
